Last Phase of Spruce Railroad Trail Work

March 9, 2020

$2 million WWRP grant contributes to the last phase of the Spruce Railroad Trail at Lake Crescent, which will begin on Monday, March 9, 2020. An op-ed in the Peninsula Daily News explains more about the project.


“The Spruce Railroad Trail improvements are part of a multi-year collaborative project to establish the entire 10-mile length of the trail as a universally accessible, multipurpose trail to be shared by hikers, bicyclists, equestrians, and people traveling in wheelchairs. The paved portion of the trail will be eight feet wide with a gravel shoulder.”

“Clallam County pulled together a combination of funding, including a grant of about $2 million from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Funding Board under the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program, a $100,000 federal Transportation Alternatives Program grant, $858,000 of federal Surface Transportation Program funding, $750,000 of county funding and $50,000 from the Peninsula Trails Coalition.” Read full op-ed
